Title: Game Six
Author: Judy Bruce
Genre: Mystery, Baseball
Haunted by danger and tragedy, a woman must solve the mystery of her mother's murder then fights to the death against the killer. GAME SIX is a contemporary drama flavored with action, romance, baseball, and Nazis.
When a neighbor’s house explodes, it injures a woman, Brit, and kills her mother. With the help of her autistic friend and a handsome detective, Brit discovers the identity of the murderer. When the killer pursues Brit, she is given the chance to avenge her mother. Is she strong enough to act?
I have recently read books about the city of Chicago and about mystery/suspense but you throw in just the hint of baseball and WOW! This book is a page turner from start to finish. Brit is a heroine I got behind right away and cheered on.
My fave character has to be Liz. The author portrays an autistic person in the most incredible way. The author breaks down the prejudices and barriers that surround this type of person with aplomb. The character of Liz shows the reader that an autistic person is nothing more than a person who lives in a unique fashion. Everyone has idiosyncratic behavior patterns that could give pause to others who are witness to them. People with autism simply do not put on the airs to hide those behaviors the way everyone else does.
A superb story from start to finish. I would read a dozen books based on Brit and Liz and the whole gang. A wonderful book for every reader, every person, everywhere.
My Rating: 5+ stars
